An Uneventful Day - So Far !

It's what's referred to by the media types as a slow newsday. They break out the archives and rerun old shows. Well not here, my little piccolo players ! Here is some of the news items that ran today. 

1) (A) Donald Trump invited (A) Rosie to appear on "The apprentice". Rosie said, "Not in this lifetime or after." 2) (A) Larry "da judge" Seidlin is being investigate for kickbacks and failure to report income. 3) (A) Rosie O'Diesel said the reason she didn't get the "Price Is Right" is because she would "gay it up" (She would ! I know). 4) The Republicans are filibustering in the Senate. 5) The Roman Catholic church shelled out 650 million in a sex case suit settlement.

You think that's news? Nah ! Take a look at the best photographs I've seen in a while along with my commentary.
